It all started a little more than 10 years ago, with elite winemakers ‘moonlighting’ in a makeshift winery (formerly an Indian restaurant). By day, they made huge volumes for big-name brands, knowing the wines could be much better—if it wasn’t for shareholders demanding tens of thousands of cases. By night, these quality-driven winemakers brought precious handfuls of grapes to practice their craft at RedHeads, where excellence in the bottle is the only ‘bottom line.’ And the acclaim soon followed…

“96 points…if it said Napa Valley on the label, you could multiply the price times six.”
– The Wine Advocate on Whip-Hand 2005

That Wine Advocate quote is a testament to the caliber of wines that continue to come out of the RedHeads Studio. If you’re quick, you can be among the few who get to taste the latest chapter of the sought-after Whip-Hand, which arrives with a gold medal from the China Wine & Spirits Best Vale Awards.

Metaphorically speaking, a ‘whip-hand’ is an advantage—the higher ground. And it’s exactly what the RedHeads team had when they returned to the winery with prime Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in the world-famous Barossa Valley. Treated to kid-glove winemaking techniques and top-of-the-line French oak barrels, this fine red is ready to impress now and has years ahead of it. Look for ripe red- and black-fruit aromas and flavors, mingling with spicy oak and minty overtones. This is succulent and smooth—a must for steaks, juicy burgers or just sipped solo.

RedHeads only sent us a few cases of this powerful, ageworthy and highly collectible Cabernet (the 96-point 2005 release now sells for $100+ a bottle—if you can find it). So please, hurry for your share.
